Types of Pro Audio Equipment




By John Bortz

Who ever said that you had to be on a world tour with your band, a professional deejay or other in some other broadcast position to buy professional audio equipment? The truth is simple- you don't have to be a pro, but be prepared to spend a few extra dollars, as there is a colossal difference between commercial grade and personal audio equipment. If you're up for the mission, read on to get some info on the different types of audio equipment available.

We'll start on this venture with speakers, as that's the final frontier of audio equipment. You can have a great sound system, but with poor quality speakers, you money is wasted. Of course, the situation is also true in the reverse, with great speakers and a lousy system. But just because a set of speakers is pricey, it doesn't mean the quality is there, or that they're the right speaker for your purpose. Speakers and subwoofers can run into thousands of dollars, so be sure that you're not buying more speaker than you need.

Heading backwards from speakers, we'll cover amplifiers just a bit. Again, your purpose for their use is crucial, as amps can run you some serious cash, so your overall seriousness and intent should govern the amount you spend. Brand names like Mackie and Crest are synonymous with the best quality. Atlas puts out a decent amp for the money, but it's not known as the cream of the crop.

So, what do you want to do with what's coming out of the speakers and/or amplifiers? Do you want to transmit over the World Wide Web? Do you want to record? Every different option requires different mediums to get them there, so you might want to have some sort of idea before you go out and purchase the wrong products.

Any good deejay knows the importance of a good mixer, not to mention the right headset to cue up the next song. If you're spinning records, turntables and needles (also referred to as phonographic cartridges) come in a variety of quality levels, but they'll all produce the same result. When spinning, you're the star, not the music blasting out of the speakers. Needles break often, as the wear on them while spinning is just not what they were designed for.

Words of advice- if you're just starting out, don't spend all of your hard-earned cash buying the latest in technology for podcasting kits and the etceteras that go along with it, as high-priced technology of today will be much cheaper tomorrow. Keep an open mind, and don't buy what you don't need. The better pro audio equipment companies will see you as a good customer for years to come, not as a commission today.
